In Spring 1919, Congress passed the language of the 19th Amendment extending the right to vote to women. The states would ratify the amendment as part of the U.S. Constitution over the coming year. In honor of the centennial of women's suffrage, the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums will be presenting an exhibit that showcases the lives of the many women who played important roles at Spiegel Grove and tells the national story of women in America, from the suffrage movement to the pursuit for social and workplace equality to the #MeToo movement. Access to the exhibit is included with regular admission. This exhibit is part of the "Finding Her Voice" program, which will include events focusing on women's historu throughout the year.
